"By the Pain I See in Others" is one of my favorite Opeth songs. I often feel like "Weakness" is the best song they have ever recorded. Morningrise is too boring to listen to beyond "The Advent." I wish the extended instrumental section in the Lamentations version of "Closure" was on Damnation; it's a magical album, but it lacks a true climactic moment. Lyrically, "Deliverance" and "Blackwater Park" are two of Mikael Akerfeldt's shining moments. "Hex Omega" is the best song on Watershed.
